Life In Toronto: A Snapshot
by Mahogany Saunders

St. Andrew's Cathedral and Roy Thomson Hall on King St.

The Greater Toronto Area is a mixture of high-rise buildings, sub-divisions of detached homes, townhouse developments and rural communities. It is very much an area in transition. For example, in some of the rural areas, it is not unusual to see sub-divisions of detached homes and townhouses on one side of the road and cattle and horses grazing across the road.

The communities in and around Toronto have done an excellent job of preserving their parks and green space. Some of the largest Parks include:

•  High Park
•  Edwards Garden in Scarborough
•  Centennial Park in Etobicoke
•  Chingcousy Park in Brampton
•  Toogood Pond in Unionville
•  Duffin's Creek in Pickering

At Black Creek Pioneer Village, just north of the Jane-Finch corridor, you will find a restored 19th Century village depicting life as it used to be in Ontario. Other attractions in the greater Toronto areas include the CN tower, Skydome, the Air Canada Center and Wild Water Kingdom.
